and how is it done? These three images are from the pdn 50 States collection //www.pdngallery.com/special/50states/2007/

//www.pdngallery.com/special/50states/2007/georgia.html
//www.pdngallery.com/special/50states/2007/nebraska.html
//www.pdngallery.com/special/50states/2007/ohio.html

Can someone help me with a brief analysis of the technique? I suspect some of the "artsy" filters in PS, but my limited foray into them certainly didn't yield anything remotely usable...

Thanks
DigitalDave

It is the Lucis Arts filter the Photog that is associated with that style is Dave Hill

There are 4 or 5 threads already discussing it.

Related to this:

Does anyone know if there's a list somewhere of available plugins (for PS), maybe with a bit of a description of what they do?

//www.lucisart.com might be it

The thing with the demo is they only let you preview what it will look like it wont do the final process. If you try to hack it it will corrupt a file and won't allow an install of a purchased plug-in until you pay for the fix the non-refundable fee to reset a system is $100.

I just don't get why this style is so popular.
Those characteristic Dave Hill shots do nothing for me.
It can work for certain things like posters and album art or magazines but that's more design and not photography.
I have a feeling that this trend won't last long and it will look and feel very dated soon.

It's just a taste people like, like many other styles some like and some don't, not sure about it won't last long :)

Seems nice, but you'll have to use it good because that example of LucasArt website looks horrible (the flower)

This work is probably all done manually in photoshop by the artist. In fact much of the look comes from the lighting, not the editing.

In my oppinion straight lucas art effects are hideous, straight draganizer effects suck, and all these action things look cheesy if you want to be taken seriously in a 'professionals' eye. However, you can sure learn a lot from them and use them to your benefit once you see how certain looks are achieved

and as for lucas art as a learning tool, $169.00 is pretty damn cheap

Does anybody know of any examples that explain how to set up this kind of lighting and edit to achieve a similar effect? I find the dave hill examples are a little bit extreme, but I'm sure its a good skill to have, especially when used with a little restraint. Joey, how did you go about learning this style, cause I noticed you have a similar look in some of your shots. Cheers

As you say most can be done in Photoshop without the filter. So that being the case $169 is a good start to a new lens or tripod for some.

Why sport the cash if you can do it without the plug in. Your $25 DVD was cheap yet probably a more effective leaning tool. IMHO

Im sure you could buy Joeys DVD and find out... for $25 it seems a much better deal to me :-)

Lotsa trial and error, though I don't think my 'style' looks much like that, but it is similar. That style kinda hurts my eyes :-p

Then you'll prolly enjoy the next one I'm working on too... :-)

And- these filters are just controlling certain elements in photoshop. You have better control just doing it yourself. However how can you do it yourself if you have no idea how? These actions are good points to start learning from and personally I'd pay a lot more for them if I was interested in that certain look. But keep in mind this is because I do this work professionally, so I am making money at it. Not so sure if a hobbyist would want to pay that much for lucasart, it's a different market
